When diecasting large and thin Mg alloy parts, material defects occur, which include porosity, nonuniform mechanical properties, irregular surfaces, and incomplete filling. To resolve these problems, it is necessary to have uniform injection velocities and temperatures as well as control the melt. This study investigated the feasibility of producing large and thin components using a die caster by attaching a high vacuum system. In particular, the effects of injection velocity on surface quality and the mechanical properties of the products were investigated. Hence, an injection velocity scheme and a die structure capable of casting in a vacuum were proposed. As a result, it was found that the critical low injection velocity was 0.2 m/s to produce large thin Mg alloy structures having good mechanical properties.
